Minnie Mouse on the runway at Lakme Fashion Week in India.
Minnie Mouse is no stranger to fashion: she has previously inspired a nail polish collection (despite always wearing gloves), walked the runway at Lakme Fashion Week in India, and now she's taking over the minds of some of our fave British designers for London Fashion Week. Lulu Guiness, Terry de Havilland, Tatty Devine, Richard Nicoll, Michael van der Ham, Piers Atkinson, Bunney, Husam el Odeh in collaboration with Luke Hersheson, and Katie Hillier are all taking inspiration from the red ribboned rodent for a presentation called "Minnie Mouse Must Haves." The collection, which will include accessories and apparel, will borrow from Minnie's instantly recognizable bow, ears and polka-dot dress. Why are these designers taking cues from a cartoon, you ask? Well, it's for charity of course! each of the pieces, which will be one of a kind, will be auctioned off on eBay following the presentation, with all proceeds going to the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, which strives to foster relationships across creative fields and promote innovation within fashion.
